1st Sundays - Group Meditation @ 9 am
This retreat is designed to be a container of silence for anyone interested in reflection and meditation. Retreat begins at 9 am and ends at noon with breaks on the hour. You're welcome to come for any part of the morning! Meets at Hagoya Yoga Studio.
2nd Sundays - Dharma Talk @ 11 am
This gathering includes a meditation, talk and open discussion led by IPBC Dharma teachers. Our goal is to bring traditional teachings into our modern, Western lives in a practical, useful way so that we might take our practice off the cushion and into the world. Come listen to the Dharma illuminated from a variety of viewpoints with practical insight and gentle humor.
2nd Wednesdays - Chant Night @ 7 pm
Come join your voices, bodies, and minds in harmony in an evening of traditional chanting and meditation! All are welcome – no experience necessary. This practice is accessible and beneficial to beginners and seasoned practitioners alike (you don't have to know the words because we provide an easy-to-follow chant sheet).
3rd Sundays - Dharma Teachings @ 11 am
All warmly welcomed for this group sangha practice as we learn about some of the specific terms, concepts and teachings in Buddhism.
4th Sundays - 4 Noble Truths @ 11 am
A gathering that focuses on the Buddha’s teachings on the Four Noble Truths and the Eightfold Path. Discussion relates not only to the teachings themselves, but also our understanding of the teachings through our own direct life experiences.
5th Sundays - Sangha Practice @ 11 am
On 5th Sundays, we will gather as a sangha to watch or listen to talks from well-known Dharma teachers or hear from a guest speaker. A great chance to hear and see from a new perspective!
